My FaT BaG

as I now affectionately call it... is another 12inch square, project bag.
I liked the "Nundle" bag from yesterdays post... so I wanted to make another one.
They are just soooo handy to have at-the-ready for storing or carrying WIP.
I used 2 pieces of a panel I had... a little stash (sides & lining)... a zip I had in storage... & Viola !
I'm hooked on making these...so expect to see a few more in the coming weeks.

DOn't ya just LoVe these LaDieS...

CuTTinG iT CLosE

My sewing bag has now been completed.... YiPPee...
The fabric & a pattern was supplied by Lynette Anderson at last year's Girls Day in the Country in Nundle... however as I don't like making "hexies" too much... I changed "my bag" into a pieced type with a zip close. It's large enough at 14 in square to fit all sorts of sewing/stitching projects inside & will be very handy for me. So ~ another "finish" & a project off the UFO list.
And I hear all you Nundle-ers saying... ABouT TiMe... lol

Girls Day in the Country is on again on March 21st... however I get to spend 3 days away AND in the company of some wonderful ladies. My extra special friend SHEZ will fly in from Victoria to stay with me as well... so look out Nundle... it will be PaRTY TiMe... lol.

Let's Book It

Although I'm a day or two behind schedule... I finally worked a little more on my FaLaLa wall hanging designed by Nancy Halvorsen.  It's NOT finished yet... but a start is a start.
The applique has been ironed in place...& most of the blanket stitch has been completed.
You'll also see that Shez & I are on the same page (literally) working through our Nancy Halvorsen books each month. It's just the nudge I need to get moving each month & that's a gOOd thing...

You can see who else joined with Sharon

It's FuN... so why don't YOU join in too.
